    But I don't see our side's extremists running the show. We have a long history and lots of experience with circular punching squads (I'm not using "firing squads" because I've become conscious of a lot of "gun language" in our culture and I'm curious as to the effect that not using it might have. It's making me search for different idiom, at the least :) ) and are used to stuffing our own crazies back down into the rucksack.

    I see conservative crazies, though, being given air time, the public microphone, attention, consideration, and most importantly, money and fame, thus showing the moderate voices that if you want "success" through money and fame--if you want to be listened to--in conservative media, you get there through the proven method of being loud and crazy.

    Crazy brings the eyeballs, the ears, the butts in seats. If it bleeds, it leads.

    How does the Republican Congress sit down with all the butthurt over taxing the wealthy?
